When it comes to millennials and the provincial election, it appears BC Liberal leader Christy Clark is facing an uphill battle, according to a new poll.

Conducted by Insights West, the poll found 71% of respondents aged 18 to 34 are not impressed with Clark’s performance up to this point.

Broken down even further, the poll found 27% of respondents said they “somewhat disapprove” of her, while the remaining 44% “strongly disapprove.”

Overall, Clark’s approval rating has dropped to 30%, while BC NDP leader John Horgan leads the pack with 37%.

BC Green Party leader Andrew Weaver’s approval rating climbed six points since February to land him in the middle with 35% approval.

At this point, almost two-thirds of voters feel it’s time for a change of government in the province (the BC Liberals have been in power since 2001). However, 37% of British Columbians say they would be “very upset” if the BC NDP forms government while 53% said they would be “very upset” if BC Liberals remain in power.

The deadline for registering to vote online or by phone is today. Alternatively, you can register when you head to the polls to vote.

The election campaign will last 28 days, with the election taking place on May 9.

The results of the survey are based on an online study conducted by Insights West from April 5 to April 8, among 801 British Columbian adults, including 625 decided voters.
